#REDALERT: The 6 Democrats invited by DOJ to view a less-redacted version of the #MuellerReport have DECLINED the offer.

I initially agreed with this, as it could strengthen the subpoena fight.

HOWEVER, if DOJ moves forward...then ONLY REPUBLICANS will see that version on Tues.
#REDFLAG: People like McCarthy, Nunes, Jordan, and Burr...will be able to mischaracterize what's redacted, while Dems won't be able to push back.

They'll also be able to WARN Trump...AND the people under ongoing investigation what it says.

Potentially jeopardizing those cases.
#REDFLAG: These Republicans would also be able to tell Trump which U.S. Attorney's Offices are handling each of the 14 redacted investigations.

Trump and his allies could target the investigators and/or replace them.

#NOTE: Barr has no duty to report if those cases are impeded.

Gotta call this out.

The media is SO DAMN IRRESPONSIBLE.

The NYT tweeted that Barr said spying occurred on the Trump campaign...without any qualification, context, using "claimed' instead of said, nor a follow up correction.

And so this tweet lives on, misinforming the public.
The Washington Post did a better job...they provided context, conveyed the gravity of such an assertion, and used "thinks" instead of presenting the claim as a fact.

However, no follow up was issued when Barr clarified his claim.

And this tweet lives on.
#WATCH: Barr was ultimately forced to clarify.

First, he said that he meant "unauthorized surveillance" not "spying."

...AND...

"I AM NOT SAYING IMPROPER SURVEILLANCE OCCURED. I am saying that I am concerned about it and am looking into it. That's all."

#REDFLAG: In Feb, after Trump was forced to reopen the government for 3 weeks, following the 35 day #TrumpShutdown...

...a bipartisan committee hashed out an immigration funding compromise to avoid another one.

But...WHERE. DID. THE. MONEY. GO?

[THREAD]
nytimes.com/2019/02/14/us/…
#ATTN: The bipartisan deal included:

🔹 $1.375B — 55 miles of New Fencing.
🔹 $524.2M — Ports of Entry + 600 New Border Agents.
🔹 $415M — Humanitarian Aid at Border.

AND...

🔹 $563.4M — for Immigration Courts, (incl. $59M for) 75 NEW JUDGES.
🔹 $527M — Aid to Central America.
#FLAG: Congress JUST passed funding for 75 new Immigration Judges, largely to hear asylum claims.

Today, AG Bill Barr boasted about DOJ's progress...PRIOR to this year.

Yet, he's requesting $72M to hire 100 new judges in FY2020.

But...WHERE DID THE MONEY GO FROM THE LAST DEAL?

#BREAKING: TRUMP DIRECTED COHEN TO LIE TO CONGRESS.

He told Cohen to give FALSE testimony about building a Trump Tower Moscow, aka the Moscow Project.

There's a reason Mueller had Cohen plead guilty to THIS crime.

It's #WitnessTampering + #Obstruction.
buzzfeednews.com/article/jasonl…
#WATCH: Barr said a President suborning perjury would be #Obstruction.

Q: "A president persuading a person to commit perjury would be obstruction. Is that right?"

Barr: "Yes."

Q: "...a president...convincing a witness to change testimony would be obstruction...?"

Barr: "Yes."
#REDFLAG: Mueller's Office takes the rare step of PUSHING BACK on Buzzfeed News' reporting.

They seem to dispute the "description" and "characterization" of corroborating documents and testimony in the article.

But not necessarily the central premise...

#REDALERT: Treasury Dept. to LIFT SANCTIONS on Oleg Deripaska's companies.

Treasury's OFAC has notified Congress it intends to terminate sanctions on Deripaska's companies — the oligarch close to Putin w/ ties to Manafort and the Mueller Investigation.

#REDFLAG: As predicted earlier in this thread...

Deripaska's companies only qualified for sanctions relief assessment BECAUSE Deripaska "stepped down."

But OBVIOUSLY Deripaska installed board members that reported directly to him.

So why lift sanctions?
#FLAG: The answer to that question is Treasury is being WILLFULLY IGNORANT.

They've directed Deripaska's companies to "undertake significant
restructuring and corporate governance," determine why the moles were installed, and reduce his influence.

LOL.

#REDALERT: TRUMP REPLACES SESSIONS.

This comes the day after the midterms. It's unclear if Sessions was fired or if he resigned.
#REDFLAG: TRUMP FORCED SESSIONS TO RESIGN.

He couldn't even wait 24 hrs to obstruct justice.

Because Sessions resigned instead of getting fired, officially, Trump was able to appoint an acting AG.

nytimes.com/2018/11/07/us/…
#REDFLAG: ACTING AG, MATT WHITAKER, HAS BEEN CRITICAL OF MUELLER.

He will take over the Russia investigation from Rosenstein. And likely end it or strongly curtail it.

Now with more seats in the Senate, confirming a new AG will be easier.
